What's a Tablet PC?

Tablet PCs are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. Most tablets are based on a smaller operating system, which allows you to purchase and download additional applications from supported stores. Tablet PCs do not have a CD/DVD drive and will not run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Tablet PCs function as a secondary device for casual entertainment purposes, and are not meant to replace a computer. They are ideal for use around the home and on the go with Wi-Fi or 3-4g mobile broadband connections (pay as you go, contract may be required for service).

  • A. Yes if you install the AMAZON app store app which is free, from there you can download the Netflix app. Let me tell you the video quality is great. HD netflix streams are great. It took me all of 5 minutes to get both apps installed and watching movies via netflix!

PROs: Affordable (kind of) - Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich - Big enough color LCD screen (9.7) with multitouch - Preloaded with simple apps - decent WiFi Connectivity - Considerable storage space @ 8 Gig - USB for external Storage and keyboard and mouse devices - Extended 16+ Gig microSD Slot (might be limited to a certain capacity, not sure). Has rear and front camera with decent megapixs @ 2 and 3 . includes built in speakers and microphone (will do skype or viber) - Has animated wallpaper. CONs: No Bluetooth connectivity (what a let down) - Battery is average to 3-4.5 hours (will shorten as it gets older) - It does not have Android market, uses GetJar. - When installing Skype and Viber togther it will uninstall the other communicator, it only allows one to exist. - USB Bluetooth devices does not seem to work using included usb adaptor, and usb apks or drivers are hard to find and most does not work (any hacks is greatly appreciated and anticipated - Please hack it!) - @ this moment (7/13/2012) NO downloadable Device support at CobyUSA.com.

For the price, this an awesome deal. I've had my for a month now it is a great internet tablet. This is not an ipad, but an excellent alternative for 1/3 the cost. If your considering buying an ipad as gift for a young child 13 or under this is a great alternative. Pros: - the latest Android OS 4.0 - great internet tablet - great size (same as ipad) - great dispaly - able to download AMAZON app / kindle. netflic etc - USB connection - HDMI output - PRICE cannot beat the price for Adroid 4.0 10" tablet Con: - No ANDROID APP market (Now called Google Play) although you can download and install via a semi-hack way - processor speed is responsive but not as fast as ipad, but good enough - back plastic feel flimsy and cheap Over all great Value

I'm thoroughly enjoying my new tablet. I'm no techy and don't have a complicated phone and I found this easy to learn. It was a little complicated to put flash player on because it doesn't accept adobe but i eventually found one to download. My girlfriend has an Ipad and it's no Ipad but it isn't several hundred dollars for something that will be obsolete with something newer and greater. It's a great price for a tablet with dual camera, enough speed for me. I did a great deal of research before I purchased this and noticed on another website it was $100 more. The apps you can find like newspapers from all over the world, radio stations from all over the world. I didn't buy this for games but for reading and using the internet and it definitely meets my needs. It is nice and lightweight compared to my laptop.

Pros: This Tablet comes with Android 4.0, clear crisp screen, Netflix looks great on it, and internet works fine. Apps You Can Get: Kindle, Nook, Netflix, Twitter, games, NBC Nightly News ( The only news app they have), Pandora, Skype, and many unknown/ unpopular apps. Cons: No Google play. Comes with Jetjar and it has very few good apps. You can download the amazon app store, which is way better than Jetjar, but no app store can top Google play. Amazon app store still don't have all the apps you might want. You can also download the SlideMe Market, but once again, you won't find a lot of cool apps. Tablet comes with 2 cameras (Web and back cam). They both seem to work fine, but I had some problems using Skype to video chat (Note that Skype is the only app you'll be able to get for video chatting) you can see the person you call, but they can't see you on their end. So what good is the web cam then? Guess it's just there to take pics, but I don't know if the reason is because the tablet I have has some type of defect. The tablet comes with wack apps. The only social networking app you can download is twitter from the Jetjar app store. Conclusion: It all depends on what you want to do. It might be good for some people who want to use it for eReading (Kindle, Bible, Kolo, & Nook app), Netflix, games, etc.

Not knowing if I would even use a tablet (I'm a heavy computer user -- laptop and desktop), I thought this would be a logical product to try. The price (on sale when I ordered it) was great. It arrived quickly and worked perfectly from day one. I have downloaded lots of different apps and even purchased the Office/app to view and edit documents and powerpoints. Have used it everyday since it arrived to check all my email accounts; googled maps and information for a trip; have downloaded several books I am reading; Facebook; games; music, just about everything. It connects easily to a USB port and a TV for larger for synching and viewing. I'm sure there are more powerful tablets on the market, but this one is great for my uses.

Not a bad little tablet for a low price. Pros: very bright crisp display, easily connects to wifi, good battery life, ability to connect external keyboard / mouse combo with usb. My skype works great on it. Cons: Getjar app suit is total trash. It's full of junk apps. Found one news app for USA Today and installed it, app said it was too old and gave an update link that lead to Google Play that this device can not access. You cant get access to Google Play period. Must be the Android licensing. I think this my worst experience with it. However if you have another device it's fairly simple to back up your apps on that device with Astro, then transfer them to Coby's download directory via usb cable connected to your pc. You can install any .apk apps from there easily with it's included file manager. Beware some of your apps will not work. Possibly because there is no menu key in Android 4.0. I have loaded Opera Mobile browser on it, along with Adobe flash to be able to view embedded videos. This tablet handles Opera Mobile much better than it's included Android browser. However if your browsing a site with a lot of graphics, give the page time to fully load before trying to scroll down it. I also recommend using the resource manager to kill any unneeded processes that stay running after you go back to the home screen before doing any serious web browsing. But remember, this is not an iPad. It's a cheap generic tablet that is great for a beginner, or a child. If your a perfectionist and demand excellence, this probably is not the unit for you.

So my spouse is deployed , i bought this product becuase of the the front and back camra. Well as all people know that the time differences is huge and opportunity to skype or video chats very small .the camra did not work! So i had 2 waste my time and gas to return items that said I can video chat. went back online and got the same product because it was a good tablet , other then the camera not working. waited for the tablet to be shipped back to me ....more time without seeing my spouse !! finally got my new tablet come to find out it's not the camera it's the product that doesnt work!! had to waste my time and gas again for the second time to return the product. I just purchased a different tablet online and now have to wait for it to be shipped to me. not only did this product not do what it was supposed to do but I've lost precious time to spend with my spouse .my daughter is 4years and this is hard for all of us . sad thing about it is I had a great tablet for skyping and but the internet slow on it, and it was returned. this will be my fourth tablet I have purchased within a month and a half ! all i want is to see my spouse....:-(
